When you're about to replace a component in your smartphone, ensure that the replacement part is already with you, so you don't have to waste any of your precious time.Let's get started with this guide!

Removing the screws

The first thing you need to do is power off your device. After that, use the P2 pentalobe screwdriver to remove the two screws on each side of the Lightning connector. Once done, place the screws in a secure place.

Heating the edges

Heating the edges of your iPhone mini 13 is a great way to eliminate any unwanted adhesive. However, be careful not to overdo it because this can cause internal and external damage to devices like screens that are more vulnerable when heated directly. You could try using a hair dryer or heating pad, whichever works better for you - don't apply too much heat given how quick-heating pad heats.

Create a gap

You will need suction cups and a suction handle to perform this step. To start:

  1. Apply the suction cups close to the bottom edge of your device.
  2. Make sure that it's placed firmly and not loose because this will make the process harder.
  3. Use the handle to pull up the screen slowly but surely.

You should now create a small gap between the display and the rear case. If not, try readjusting the suction cups until you get the desired result. Now that there's a gap, we can start prying open the case using an opening pick.

Pry open the case

Use an opening pick to insert it between the display and rear case. Do this all around the edges until the adhesive has been completely removed. You can also use the spudger for this but make sure that it's the plastic kind to avoid causing any damage.The heating pad is tricky, but it's easy enough once you know it. Make sure your device has been heated enough for the adhesive to be cut with no damage done! First, start by softening just one edge so there are not too many hard edges against which we'll later scrape; then, use an Opening Pick along each corner. Insert them only about 1mm and not more than that.

Opening the iPhone

The next part is the tricky bit. You have to open your iPhone 13 screen without slicing any attached wires, so you must be extra careful with this step - but don't worry! Allowing only one side of each component housing to come off will give enough space for them. While still being able to lift slightly on either end if need be. Just make sure everything stays put before lifting too far, or else you could potentially do even more damage.

Unscrew the battery and display cable cover

The connector cover is there to keep your display and battery safe. The screen connection holds it in place, so be careful when removing it! You'll need one screw undone before removing either the front or back panels of this part- To get started, unscrew using a screwdriver for best results.Once the screws are out, you must disconnect the cables from the main board.

Removing the front sensor connector cover

Disconnecting the front sensor from your board is easy. Just remove the three screws, and you'll have access to it.

  • One PH000 1.4 mm-long screw
  • One Y000 1.8 mm-long screw
  • One Y000 1.2 mm-long screw

Once you have removed all the screws, lift your screen with small tweezers. Then underneath will be some cables that need to come off for us to replace them properly- now we can safely remove everything else!

Unscrewing the bottom speaker

With the help of a tweezer, hold one edge of the speaker and carefully lift it off the body. There will be four screws that need to be removed. Once you completely remove them, you can safely take out the bottom speaker.Now that the speaker is completely removed, you can start replacing it.
